Documentation for customer user models should warn about naming it User

Reported by: mjtamlyn Owned by: nobody

If you swap in a customer user model where the name of the class is not User, and you are using PermissionsMixin, then (for example) the Group model will no longer have a user_set related object descriptor. This should be documented as a warning when using custom user models with the PermissionsMixin, and suggest that the fix (may be) to use a modified PermissionsMixin which specifies the related_name exactly.
